Ron Barber, Social Worker

Title

Ron Barber, Social Worker

Description

There is no greater calling than to serve your fellow men. There is no greater contribution than to help the weak. There is no greater satisfaction than to have done it well.

Ron Barber, a social worker and aide to Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (D-Ariz.) who was injured in the January shootings in Tucson, was given a Special Recognition Award for establishing a Fund for Civility, Respect and Understanding. That fund is starting an anti-bullying program in public schools and is seeking to lessen the stigma surrounding mental illness by doing a community-wide educational campaign to increase awareness of mental illness and treatment options.
